Feel like giving them to a deserving noob?

Not this time buddy, because hopefully I will be back on the street at some point, and these are the only ones that have knee and shin guards and actually stay up on my leg without folding since they have 3 straps.

Someone is more than welcome to borrow them if needed though.



PS- Knee guards cost $15-35. My knee surgery for a torn meniscus was around $16,000

It's not worth it guys, stay in one night instead of partying and go buy these.

Don't tear your meniscus. Get rid of cable and upgrade to DirecTV

Not to mention the knee/shin gaurds make riding in the cold AWESOME... best windbreaker available. Just regular jeans and Astar knee/shin gaurds all winter. Mine were just under $25 at Motorcycles Unlimited. The lower strap is just above the top of Sidis, so the protection overlaps by about 1in.

oh and flappy jeans feel weird now.
